The webinar has been organized by the Chair Denis Dubourdieu “Taste and Aroma Components of Wines” in collaboration with Infowine. The recordings of all the presentations are available at the bottom of this page.

What are the components that cause the sweet sensation not related to sugars and how can they be controlled? How to interpret the aromatic richness of wines? How to predict the effects of climate change on the ageing potential of wine?

Four researchers from the Enological Research Unit of the Institute of Vine and Wine Sciences (ISVV) in Bordeaux (France) provided us with the keys to understanding these complex mechanisms to help us exploit them in the management of our vineyard.

– Taste balance of dry wines – implications for the oenologist – Axel MARCHAL & Marie Le SCANFF

– Wine components and varietal aromatic typicity: which keys to interpret in 2022? – Philippe DARRIET

– Climate change and red wine aromas: focus on cooked fruit notes – Alexandre PONS
